Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2587-1

Ubuntu Security Notice 2587-1 - A stack overflow was discovered in the the microcode loader for the intel x86 platform. A local attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (kernel crash) or to potentially execute code with kernel privileges. It was discovered that the Linux kernel's IPv6 networking stack has a flaw that allows using route advertisement (RA) messages to set the 'hop_limit' to values that are too low. An unprivileged attacker on a local network could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (IPv6 messages dropped). Various other issues were also addressed.

linux-lts-trusty vulnerabilities
============================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-lts-trusty: Linux hardware enablement kernel from Trusty

Details:

A stack overflow was discovered in the the microcode loader for the intel
x86 platform. A local attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of
service (kernel crash) or to potentially execute code with kernel
privileges. (CVE-2015-2666)

It was discovered that the Linux kernel's IPv6 networking stack has a flaw
that allows using route advertisement (RA) messages to set the 'hop_limit'
to values that are too low. An unprivileged attacker on a local network
could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (IPv6 messages
dropped). (CVE-2015-2922)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
linux-image-3.13.0-51-generic 3.13.0-51.84~precise1
linux-image-3.13.0-51-generic-lpae 3.13.0-51.84~precise1

After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
all the necessary changes.

ATTENTION: Due to an unavoidable ABI change the kernel updates have
been given a new version number, which requires you to recompile and
reinstall all third party kernel modules you might have installed. If
you use linux-restricted-modules, you have to update that package as
well to get modules which work with the new kernel version. Unless you
manually uninstalled the standard kernel metapackages (e.g. linux-generic,
linux-server, linux-powerpc), a standard system upgrade will automatically
perform this as well.
